As a teacher that uses iPads in class- I find at the end of the year that the iPads camera roll's are chock FULL of educational videos and pictures!!

Of course there are also those "funny face" pictures scattered throughout the educational  pics. These also need to be deleted for next the next school year!

Normally, deleting a few pictures from your camera rolls is a few taps and delete- but when you have 294 pictures!!!!! Who wants to tap 294 times????

STOP this craziness!!! There IS a better way!! It is much easier to do if you connect your iPad to your Mac- so here is what you need to do. I can wait if you need to go get your stuff!!
